Mediterranean Tilapia

We have made this like 2 or times since we moved into our house and to say its one of our favorite meals is PROBABLY an understatement. I mean its SO simple, and its delicious, AND its healthy, are you kidding me?! You never hit the dinner trifecta like that, but here it is, delivered to you on a silver platter… or my little pottery barn plates, but its all the same, right?! Also, I heard on the news recently that eating  a more Mediterranean style diet can help improve heart health, added benefits, right!? So, here’s all ya need for this simple, heathly, TASTY, week night meal:

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  •  2/3 cup seeded and chopped Roma tomatoes
  • 1 3/4oz reduced fat feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 lb tilapia fillets, bones removed
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive oil nonstick cooking spray

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Lightly coat both sides of tilapia fillets with nonstick cooking spray, then season both sides with salt and pepper. Lay fillets side by side, barely touching, in prepared baking dish.

Top evenly with tomato mixture. Bake 13-17 minutes, or until fish flakes with a fork and is no longer translucent. Serve immediately.

We served ours over couscous which is also really really easy to make, AND its super cheap! Holler! We have had the same container of couscous since the first time we made this and its only half empty. Talk about a few dollars well spent!
